This starts on Sky One in July in the UK.. not sure of the date yet.. will check up later :smiley: I can't decide if I'm looking forward to it or not. I read half of the first Sookie Stackhouse novel and got distracted by a favourite author bringing out a book and never went back to it. Maybe I should do so now!

Whew! I just watched the every episode in the past few days. It's got a hold on me. Can't deny it. I love all the characters, and I'm fascinated by what's coming up for Tara, Sam, and their creepy acquaintance Maryann!

Okay so I REALLY don't trust daphne! I think she's in league with maryann. Or maybe Maryann possessed her and transfered Sam's gift to her! That scar can't bode well...

Haha sorry!

I think this next comment is generic--I'm interested by this unfolding dynamic between a vampire and his/her maker. It's been on the back burner for ages, but now I feel we're beginnign so see what that means and how it plays out!

I guess I should say at this point that I have read the books LOL

Watched the first four episodes of season 1 now, looking good. I'm impressed with how well they've stuck to the book so far. It's by far the best vampire-based tv show I've seen. Now if only we can get them to do Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Underworld series!!!! :smiley:


Move over, Queen Sophie-Ann!

There may be more lesbian vampires coming to True Blood.

Series creator Alan Ball recently told the Advocate magazine that he could imagine Eric's toughass sidekick, Pam, getting in on some girl-on-girl action.

And now Kristin Bauer, who plays Pam, tells us she's up for it…

"I wouldn't be surprised," Bauer said at last night's Bow Wow Beverly Hills benefit for the Amanda Foundation animal rescue. "I think she's pansexual."

In fact, Bauer already has a ladylove in mind: Ginger, the Fangtasia waitress played by Tara Buck.

"There are so many hot ones, but I'll pick Ginger," she said. "Ginger's hot. Ginger's fun. She's a screamer and she's a blood donor."

Hopefully, Ginger will stick around longer on the HBO series than she does in the original Sookie Stackhouse novels that True Blood is based on.

"I've been reading the books because I heard that Ginger died," Buck said. "I was very upset and I needed to see if it happened. And in book four, it happens!"


Its good to see but not so much interesting ..........

You need to get into it.

When I first started watching it, I honestly thought the series was an excuse for porn. The first episode, until I think the third one, have a LOT of nudity and sex....but it does slow down.

It's interesting if you focus on the storyline. You have a world where there are supernatural people, and Vampires are "out of the coffin" so to speak...if that's not interesting I don't know what is!


What were you wanting Margo? What exactly let you down?

I came in with no expectations and was blown out of the water. I love her world and I love the complications of it.
